Phil Cooney, in his role in operations and student management at The Scots College reflects on his 20 plus years managing adolescent behaviour. Phil believes that boys crave consistency and structure. “They want to know the boundaries. Boys don't operate in the grey, they work best in black and white, where they have a known outcome and they know exactly how they're going to get there.” Phil shares the importance of consistency and discipline, and knowing when to “not sweat the small things”.
